1st the check engine light keeps coming on and when put on diagnostic code came back po463. the van wouldn't pass emissions and when you fill up with gas it would say it was empty. there's a loud popping noise sounds like at axle. it does this after you stop at red lights. i was told this had to do with axle and could brake and cause fatal accident, the abs light keeps coming on and the braking system scared me to death. the doors constantly chime or ding and the doors will open going down the road. i was so upset because i have to transport my elderly aunt and two children and before i was about to pay to have all this fixed i decided to check out recall. i am so shocked that you can look this up online and they are 1000 documented complaints on all the same problems but yet no recalls. is it going to take people getting killed to do this. i am praying for something less tragic and trying to save these precious lives. there is research and lawsuits that the chevrolet uplanders have a lot of these problems from 2005 to 2008 especially with the doors and like me everyone gets annoyed and unplugs them and have to use them manually but why should we when are still paying for automatic doors. this van is truly unsafe and a lemon. i pray to god everyday to keep me safe while driving and have told my husband if i die while driving this vehicle he should sue!!! updated 01/17/12 *bf the consumer stated gm called and asked her to bring the van in for a diagnostic test. they stated she would have to pay for the test. the fuel sensor was replaced in 2006. however, the consumer stated it had to be replaced again. they also aligned the doors in 2008 which was proof of an ongoing problem. updated 01/18/12 *tr

abs light came on after brakes were replaced by chevrolet mechanic. took back and was told needed new front wheel hub. hub was replaced at our expense, and abs light was reset by chevrolet certified mechanic. abs light came back on before left the parking lot, but mechanic said it was okay and he wouldn't worry about it. left on vacation the next day. newly replaced brakes made horrible grinding noises all throughout trip. also began getting intermittent brake warning light, and "service brake system" and "service abs system" warnings. crawled under vehicle and found wires to the new wheel hub were broken at wheel hub. wires were for the wheel rotation sensor, as it was improperly installed. replaced wheel hub again at our expense, because chevrolet certified mechanic said first hub wasn't installed improperly, but also said the only way the wires could have become torn would be if it had been installed improperly. abs light and brake light were out for about one (1) week. second replacement hub and wiring are still intact, but still have continuous abs light and intermittent brake light as well as previously mentioned warnings. different chevrolet certified mechanic says there is nothing to worry about, only problem is that abs system will not function, but brakes will still work as if no abs system were on the vehicle. also had the same problem with the continuous abs light on a different chevrolet vehicle. if chevy can't make the abs system work after the brakes are worked on, why continue with the extra expense of putting them on? i now have two(2) chevrolet abs systems that their certified mechanics say are in tip top condition, only problem is neither system works. also, regarding the 2005 uplander, the driver's side sliding door will not shut properly, resulting in constant warning chimes every time the door is used. again, chevy mechanics say nothing is wrong with the door or the system. maybe chevy should get out of the car business! *tr

the abs light on the vehicle came on while driving. the light started going on and off regularly so the vehicle was brought in to the dealer for service. the dealer said the front wheel hub bearings needed to be replaced but these were not covered under warranty. both front wheel hub bearings were replaced at our own expense but then the light started going on and off again. the vehicle was taken back to the dealer and this time they said the computer & wiring system was bad and needed to be replaced. the dealer also indicated that this had been a recurring problem on this model but not enough consumers were affected to generate a recall so we would have to pay for this repair ourselves as well. the dealer has instructed us that it is dangerous to operate the vehicle until the repairs are made. *tr

i have a abs light that comes on for the braking system, it says to have the abs serviced, but the brakes are new, this is a safety issue and i let chevrolet know about it, but they seem they don't care, they want me to take it in to have it diagnosed to find the problem; when they should cover all costs. this is a 2006 chevy uplander van, i'm afraid one of these times the brakes wont work and there will be deaths cause to this. also i have a problem with the power locks, they wont lock sometimes; there is only one key lock on this van and i can't lock the hitch so all the other doors i can manually lock both the hitch stays unlocked. this has become a hassle to lock the doors each time and again chevy wont fix it they want me to take it in to have it diagnosed and it is probably just a toggle switch that is broke, a replacing part that only costs $60.00. this is a theft issue that anyone can enter my van because i cant lock it. soon there will be property damage and there will be both a crash and a fire to the van. *tr

2007 chevy uplander lt speed and abs sensor on front passenger and driver side completely torn off. i thought it might be associated with a wreck i was involved in so i took it to a gm dealer for inspection. i was told that the loss of sensors could not be related to accident. this is not a result of normal wear and tear or a maintenance issue. this results in failure of abs system. danger is posed when a sudden stop is required to avoid a collision or driving in icy conditions. i had the vehicle evaluated on 3/10/2009 and repaired on 3/11/2009 at a brakes repair shop. costly to perform repairs and was told by the people that replaced the hub and wheel bearing assembly that the sensor and wires that lead from the hub run very close to the axle which more than likely resulted in the damage. *tr
